Meal Planning Monday

I hope everyone had a good Valentines Day!  I got to accompany my little brother and his friend at his church meeting, so we had a long day of meetings with the kids.  They were champs!  My family came for dinner- prawn coconut curry, naan, rice, and mint ice cream for dessert.  Family favorites, all- if you like coconut curry, try this one, it's amazing.  The mint ice cream was my easy vanilla ice cream, but I steeped 2 cups of bruised mint leaves from last summer's garden in the milk/cream mixture overnight.

Meals for this week:

Monday: Crockpot roast chicken (yes, this was from last week- the bird didn't thaw until Saturday!) with carrots, onions, potatoes, parsnips.  I'll freeze the rest of the chicken.

Tuesday: Pinto beans, rice.  Steamed carrots.

Wednesday: Pancake or waffle night- Daddy is at Scouts, and Wednesday is girl's night!

Thursday:  Baked potato bar- sour cream, green onions from the garden, cheese, chili, tortilla chips

Friday: DATE NIGHT!

Saturday:  sushi night

Sunday: TBD- I'm not sure if I'm hosting or not!

Not an exciting week, but the girls are still sick and it should at least be calm *smile*

I wish I could get away with serving pancakes for dinner! I love pancakes with peanut butter:)

I wish I could be so organized with meal planning but since it is just my husband and I now I don't think ahead as much as I used to when my son and daughter lived at home. although I did put on some bread to raise this morning and a nice pot of homemade chicken and noodle soup is slow simmering with chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert. The rest of the week is up for grabs of whatever we might find tucked in the frig!

Yummy! We like curry dishes as well.

That ice cream sounds so good. Do you freeze your mint? Have you ever tried mint yogurt? I've been thinking about googling this. Unfortunately, all my mint from the garden is dried.
